Custom Pocket Headboard
We recently got a bunk bed from a neighbor on Freecycle and I made these custom headboards to cover the metal bars and add much needed storage. Before the boys would take books to bed and wake with them rumpled in the am. Now they can store their night time toys and books in their pocket headboard. I also added a see thru vinyl pocket to put pictures in. I recycled the vinyl from the packaging of a tablecloth. The entire project is very easy to make and great for beginner sewers. My pocket headboards are attached with buttons and reinforced with Pellon® Peltex® to make it a bit studier. Instead of attaching to a headboard you could hang it from a wall near your child's bed or hang on hooks from the bedside. Both of my kids' are enjoying their secret pockets and I'm enjoying the "lights out-stay in your bed" rule.

What a great idea. Keep those ideas coming.
Now that is THE coolest thing I have seen in a while! Great job- especially with re-using the package from the tablecloth. I did some creative re-using the other day, and thought of you. We bought some new bamboo sheets for our bed, and they came in a bag of sorts, with a toggle closure. I am now using the bag to carry shoes in my work bag to save anything from getting dirty. Will probably use it also as a undergarment bag when we go on vacation next week. I thought...hmm...Gretch would be proud. :)
Great idea, especially since you've managed to recycle lots of materials! Here's a small suggestion for a new incarnation - how about little pockets for the tooth fairy? Might make a nice little change for kids expecting the tooth fairy (and a lot easier to access for the "tooth fairies" too!).
